EY Supplier Risk Intelligence solution

In Consulting

Uncover risks associated with suppliers, and outline proactive and appropriate mitigating actions to achieve supplier visibility with EY Supplier Risk Intelligence, a turnkey solution.

Your business challenge

Supply chains for most organizations have grown large and complex. Businesses are relying on third parties to stay competitive; suppliers are introducing increasingly significant risks across multiple domains, in an ever-changing risk landscape. As consumers apply additional pressures and regulators require improved supply chain governance, it’s critical that businesses have a clear view of the risks introduced by their suppliers. 

Does your organization: 

  • Prioritize proactive supplier risk management activities against an ever-expanding risk landscape?
  • Use external data to inform the right initiatives that can deliver the most commercial value?
  • Have a cost-effective approach to supplier visibility through your entire value chain?

Solution benefits

EY Supplier Risk Intelligence (SRI) provides the foundational insights to build a comprehensive overview of potential supplier risks, address compliance demands and, eventually, achieve commercial value. Our solutions help you to:

  • Gain new perspective into your supplier risk management approach.
  • Uncover hidden risks and vulnerabilities across multiple risk dimensions.
  • Access clear, actionable insights through entity-level next-best-action suggestions.

Use case

Introduction of new suppliers into the ecosystem due to expansion or acquisition requires tedious due diligence. SRI can help prioritize efforts based on segmentation and risk score ranking.
